Does it make sense now?
No. In no way does this give weight to the theory. We put the data there on our own accord. It does not experience things on its own. Take all of the

Pinching yourself does not harm your soul. Oh really? How about the people who regularly undergo out-of-body experiences? Are they simply imagining?
There are dozens of credible military officials who will tell you that it's real. What, then, leaves the body? You can still feel emotions when you

aroused, you talk in your sleep. The body is still there supporting you while you imagine yourself in far off lands.
How does one conclude, if they have never once in their life been without a body, that the soul is separate?
